This course introduces students into the study of contemporary violent conflict. These conflicts are generally very difficult to resolve, and have a strong influence in shaping society. These conflicts have variously been referred to as “new wars,” “civil wars,“ “ethnic conflicts,” “complex political emergencies,” “insurgency,” or “terrorism.” Rather than choosing for one of these labels, this course aims to expose students to a variety of theoretical approaches, each one using different a term for, and focusing on different analytical aspects of, the phenomena studied.

The course offers an introduction to issues, theories, and concepts pertaining to the analysis, explanation, and understanding of contemporary violent conflict. It introduces students to conflict analytical models and theories and applies the in-depth case study approach as teaching method. We will address debates on root causes, conflict dynamics, the (often contested)  efforts of conflict resolution, interventionism and resulting situations of ‘war nor peace’.  We will draw on debates on group formation, human needs, the role of the state, external interventions and alliances, built-in dynamics of (de)escalation and  the formation of war economies. Students are trained in making multi-level conflict analyses, dynamic life cycle analyses, and conflict mapping techniques.
